Tips of Managing Your Health During Pandemic & the Ongoing Work From Home Culture

The Covid-19 pandemic has completely changed the way we live and work. It shifted professionals within the four walls of their home. While this concept already existed among various domestic and international corporations, it was mostly by choice. But the pandemic and accompanying social distancing mandates made it a necessity. Working from home offered a greater level of worker flexibility and made it unnecessary to commute in an effort to bring down the risk of infection spread. Along with benefits, the work from home culture also brought along a variety of physical and mental challenges. Keeping such things in mind, we have assembled a guide which is going to propel you towards the right way of caring for your overall health.

  • Be Disciplined

Going to the office binds us to a daily routine which gets disrupted while working from home. But maintaining a high level of personal discipline is an absolute must when it pertains to the time you wake up, exercise, have meals or work.

  • Minimize Distractions

Getting distracted while working from home is very normal because we don’t identify our home setup with work in the first place. Kids screaming in the next room, pets running helter-skelter, house help seeking advice and even delivery boys at your front door can make it difficult for you to concentrate. But you can increase your concentration level by playing certain types of games like chess, sudoku, scrambles, crossword puzzles, jigsaw puzzles and more. Playing other types of video games like are also known to help boost your concentration levels while increasing your feel-good factor.

  • Sleep Adequately

A minimum eight hours of sleep is recommended by health experts for operating at the top of your efficiency. Sufficient sleep renders adequate support to your immune system while helping with better regulation of emotions and stress management. Since more heart attacks occur during the early morning, sleeping can bring down blood pressure and cholesterol levels which are known to increase that risk factor. Sleep has an important role to play in the memory consolidation process so you perform better at remembering things and managing stress during the day.

  • Indulge in Hobbies

Not being able to meet colleagues can induce boredom into your life and having a hobby in place can make everything seem more interesting. Apart from opening new doors of personal development, it can help in relieving stress so you don’t face any difficulty while relaxing. This is why health professionals suggest getting hobbies as an alternative medication especially when you want to divert your mind from stressors.

  • Set Up a Workstation

Having a workstation in place can serve as the best way of dealing with dwindling concentration levels. This is why you should set up your workstation in an area with good lighting. It is preferable if your workstation is located in a separate room from where your children spend their time so you don’t get disturbed by their ongoing online classes. The height of your chosen desk and chair needs to be proper so you don’t experience any kind of strain at your neck or back while working over prolonged durations of time. Operating the computer over long stretches can make you vulnerable to blue light radiation from the screen and herein lies the importance of using anti-glare glasses.

  • Break the Sedentary Pattern

Office goers usually fall prey to a sedentary lifestyle as they are required to sit for hours in front of the computer. But the risk has increased further in the pandemic era as the millennials don’t have the option of even commuting to the office, taking the stairs, moving around with files or even going to the cafeteria or breakroom to fill up their coffee mug. It’s all about being seated in a corner of your house and getting the work done. The current pandemic has also increased the working hours as more and more people can be seen stretching their work hours beyond their normal office time.

However, this highly sedentary lifestyle is opening a flood gate for health concerns. You can gain an edge over the same by primarily taking care of your posture while sitting. Ideally you need to sit straight so your forearms and lower back remains supported on the chair arms. Using your mouse with any support for your forearms can add to the strain level of your neck and shoulders. You should also take a break every few minutes and go for a small walk occassionally, maybe maybe checking on your children or pets.


Working from home can become an enjoyable experience if you follow a disciplined routine which is in sync with both your physical and mental well-being. As you get a better chance at striking a balance between work and leisure, you need to determine a fixed schedule for incorporating exercises which can maintain your physical fitness level.
